Observations on the repellent action of the dead bodies of scarabs

When sprays of aqueous extracts of the decaying bodies of scarabaeids (the species not being given) were applied to fruit trees, including apple, in studies in Henan Province, China, in 1979-80, the repellent action of such sprays gave better control of the scarabaeids than did parathion sprays.
